Archaeological finds on a construction site - whether expected or unexpected - can lead to delays and costs to project programmes.
Examples of the historic environment in terrestrial, intertidal or marine locales present opportunities to add value to development projects.
The opportunity to maximise the economic, social and environmental benefits and lasting legacy potential provided by the historic environment can be realised from early identification and integration into project design through to incorporation into the built asset.
These benefits can range from creating community / amenity spaces to providing educational resources as well as the potential to generate income (eg increased tourism) and contributing to creation of a lasting legacy through the preservation of examples of the UK’s rich historical and cultural heritage.
Delegates at the webinar will:
- Hear a selection of case studies which will present good practice and lessons learned for managing archaeology in construction
